Let the Sun Shine! It’s May Ray Day, and We’re Celebrating With Delta-8 THC!

It’s May 19, and the springtime flowers are blooming. The sun is shining, and the warm air of spring is bringing us to the cusp of summer. We’ve finally thrown our winter clothes in the closet for good, and we’re ready to spend our days on the beach and in the park running barefoot in the grass. Thanks to new guidance from the CDC, we can take off our masks thanks to new vaccines. And, of course, we have a slew of Delta-8 THC products to enjoy.

This new sense of brightness is best expressed by today’s celebration — National May Ray Day. Not only does this minor holiday have the best rhyming scheme we’ve ever heard, but it’s so full of sunshine and fun that it can’t help but make us giddy. May Ray Day makes us feel a certain way; we do have to say, today!

Anyway, if you’re not familiar with May Ray Day, what you need to know is that it’s all about sunshine. “National May Ray Day is celebrated on May 19 and today we celebrate all the rays of sunshine in our lives,” writes one site. “It’s that time of year when the remnants of spring bring the whispers of summer, and the sunshine is at its most inviting. So what are you waiting for? Take a gulp of that sweet summer air.”

The best thing to do in the sun is to relax. And the best way to relax is with Delta-8 THC. Nothing is better than perhaps some Delta-8 THC gummies or a bottle of Delta-8 THC oil to help you chill in the sun.

And while you’re enjoying National May Ray Day, you might want to take some time to celebrate a few other holidays as well today. As you know, here at Diamond CBD, whenever there’s an opportunity to have fun with Delta-8, we take it. And today, there’s plenty of reasons to celebrate.

For example, did you know that today is National Barber Mental Health Awareness Day? Every time you go for a haircut or a shape-up, you probably sit in the chair and share some of your deepest thoughts with your barber. Maybe you ask for some advice or just talk about your troubles. Your barber does more than simply make you look good; he or she makes you feel good too. That’s why today, we’re checking in our barbers to make sure they’re doing alright. 

Ask your barber how they feel today. And share some Delta-8 THC with them as well. Trust us; they’ll thank you for it!

Today is also Emergency Medical Services for Children Day (EMSC), a day to recognize all healthcare professionals who help and serve the youngest among us. Healthcare professionals in emergency medicine do some fantastic work, and they deserve our respect and gratitude. Today is a day to show them our respect.

To top it all off, today is National Devil’s Food Cake Day. It’s a great day to try out your Delta-8 THC vape cartridge, build up an appetite, and then go to town on a big piece of cake! And then share some of that cake with your barber and local emergency care professional!

Be My Sunshine This May Ray Day, and Let’s Share Some Delta-8 THC!

National May Ray Day is all about sunshine, happiness, and fun — all things that we love and appreciate here at Diamond CBD. Today’s celebration reminds us of that famous line, hope springs eternal, as it not only brings about images of spring and summertime but of new beginnings and new opportunities for change. With the flowers blooming and the weather growing warm, we can’t help but feel a bit of hopefulness in the air.

It’s a bit similar to the hopefulness we feel when we break out the Delta-8 THC. Looking back, it’s only been about a year now since Delta-8 has completely taken over our imaginations. Only a few years before that, something like Delta-8 would have been unthinkable. There’s no way that a hemp-derived cannabinoid that allows you to feel… blissful would even be allowed on the market. Today, we have multiple brands and types. There’s no better way to celebrate National May Ray Day.

But what is National May Ray Day? And why do we celebrate? For the answer to that, we turn to the 1970s and, of all things, a comedian. “The origin of National May Ray Day was thanks to comedian Richard Ankli, who decided to honor his brother Ray, who was born on that same day,” writes one site. “In 1977, the Broadway Fun Spot (nickname for a Broadway residence) in St. Joseph, Michigan, decided to commemorate the day by turning it into an official holiday. Richard Ankli is also the founder of Welcome Giving Day (celebrated in November).”

There’s no better way to enjoy National May Ray Day than with some Delta-8 THC Candy. After all, what better way to welcome the sunshine than with the sweet, delicious buzz of confections and sugar. Here at Diamond CBD, we have the best candy options, including Chill Plus Delta-8 Lollipop Blueberry, Chill Plus Delta-8 Lollipop Mango, and Chill Plus Delta-8 Lollipop Cherry. Each of these is loaded with 25mg of Delta-8 and tons of sunshine.

It’s the perfect way to enjoy National May Ray Day.

It’s National Devil’s Food Cake Day. As one site tells us, “studies have shown that we enjoy food more when it feels like an indulgence.

Hair Cuts, Emergency Medicine, Devil’s Food Cake, and Delta-8 THC

Let’s not forget our other celebrations today going on in conjunction with National May Ray Day. As we like to say here at Diamond CBD, if there’s a reason to enjoy Delta-8 THC, we’ll find it! And we have definitely found a few today. So get ready to break out your favorite brands of Delta-8 THC because the party is going to last all night long.

For starters, as we mentioned a bit earlier, today is National Barber Mental Health Awareness Day. So what is this day all about? Well, according to one site, it’s about giving back. “Recent times have seen a growing recognition for the unique role that barbers can and do take on in helping people with their mental health. One such example is a non-profit venture that sees a barbershop double as a place for men of color to talk about their problems. A similar program is forming in the U.K. where the N.H.S., the U.K.’s public health service, launched an initiative in 2020 to provide mental health first aid training for barbers.”

Keeping in line with National Barber Mental Health Awareness Day, today is also Emergency Medical Services for Children Day. With all of the focus on adult emergency care over the past year, we can’t forget those who help the youngest among us. As one site notes, “The first National Emergency Medical Services Week was declared on November 3–10, 1974, by President Gerald Ford, with Wednesday of that week being the first EMSC Day. It was only in 2007 that the month was changed to May. The purpose was to highlight the need for high-quality and specialized emergency medical care for children, with a focus also on the challenges that medical personnel might face.” 

The site also notes that ‘EMSC Day is also meant to raise awareness about the need for more such services and trained professionals.”

Finally, it’s National Devil’s Food Cake Day. As one site tells us, “studies have shown that we enjoy food more when it feels like an indulgence, and nothing says "indulgence" more than a cake named after the devil himself. If we've had a bad day or are in need of some good old fashion chocolate comfort food, nothing feels like more what the doctor ordered than a slice of the richest most indulgent cake there is.”

So what’s the best type of Delta-8 THC for today? In our opinion, the best kind is any king you prefer. But, we do have a few recommendations. Why not try some of our new arrivals to mark the celebrations? Chill Plus Delta-8 THC Premium Pre-Roll - Bubba Kush, Liquid Gold Delta-8 Vape Pen - Train Wreck or Delta-8 THC Extreme Gummies Bundle make for an ideal treat!

Whichever way you decide to celebrate, we hope you have a buzz-worthy day. And we’ll see you tomorrow for more fun!
